not -- this is the supreme law of the land religion is part of me but it's not what i'm going to go to. he is not rick sanatorium he is a religious man. >> jennifer: sure, i get that. you are a performer. i'm curious what you thought about the performance of day, the delivery of this. normally you start a big speech with a couple of jokes. but you don't do that with the inauguration. >> not one president has ever told a joke in their inauguration. they tell jokes at the conventions, campaign trail, state of the union, even debates -- >> jennifer: it's so solemn. >> open a joke with what are all of you people doing my backyard something? [ laughter ] >> but i think president obama is savoring looking back at the crowd, that is human to me. he is a human being like all of us. >> jennifer: so this was also a -- these inaugural speeches some have been very brief, some very been very long. this was was 18 minutes. was it about the right length? >> i think so. jerry nabb the congressman from new york looks like he is falling asleep over and over. >> jennifer: yeah, we have his youngest d
brainwashing we do in positive ways. we tell them to eat with a fork and knife and if you believe in religion and if you think of something good you take your kids to church and you teach them positive things, etc. but you teach them bad things, too. as you see this, there is obviously no way in the world your kids would california say say california. he couldn't tell if there was a black or white person. >> i have a similar reaction to todd. when we see adults spouting off hateful things, we don't have any sort of compassion for them whereas i look at this kid and i think, he has no hope. he's being raised with this hateful message. of course he's going to most likely turn into a very hateful person. i think it might change the way i talk to someone who is deeply racist or sexist in any sort of way. >> cenk: it goes to insecurity and how they were raised, but we don't know. i would like to find the kid. you don't have to go in that direction, but it predisposes you. but jayar, it creates sympathy for the racist. >> this is what you would hope to happen, as hermella said, when you see someone
tradition kept alive in the vatican walls and it has turned this faith into a third world religion. do you see any connection between a vow of celibacy, put in place in 1100 ad so priests could not leave wealth to their kids, in this unhealthy behavior that we don't see manifested in religious that don't have this celabicy rule. >> you're right. the problems with the celibacy rule many believe that the sexually troubled catholic teens and young men who have bizarre scary, sexual urges they believe that celibacy is a gift from god and if they pledge themselves to a life to god and in church they will be suppressed of these urges. that's are a nice hope but the practical reality is that many instances the reverse plays out. when you restrict your pool of potential ministers to only men who have promised to be celibate you're bound to attract less than healthy individuals and you're going to create situations in which many, many men, if no one can have sex of any sort, then many men will have a sexual secret. and if you have a sexual secret you're not going to rat out priests who are abusing
we worship a real god and they worship the false god. never mind the fact that both religions agree it is the same god. here's jerry boykin on fox news on sunday. >> mixing the genders in those combat units where there is no privacy, where they're out on extended operations and there's no opportunity for people to have any privacy whatsoever. i certainly don't want to be in that environment with a female because it's degrading and human igiating enough to have -- humiliating enough to do your personal hygiene and the normal functions among your teammates. >> john: eric, is he saying we can send them to kill people and be killed and be shot at but it must be degrading if someone sees my wee-wee? >> yeah. the idea that this hasn't been discussed within the pentagon for at least a decade. hasn't been signed off by all of the senior officials and things like that. i mean what do these people think? obama called up the generals and said make this happen? for someone like boykin who's been in the military to pretend he has no idea, you know, how decisions are made in the military, it is k
